The Story of Ambient Energy

The word “ambient” means all around you, thus “ambient energy” strives to capture the energy that is all around us. Ambient Energy envisions a world inhabited with regenerative and resilient buildings, buildings that are capable of responding to and enduring natural disasters while at the same time healing and restoring the earth, improving people’s lives, and enhancing the capacity for all life on our planet.

Ambient Energy was founded in 2004 as a boutique third-party consulting firm specializing in high-quality energy, commissioning and sustainability solutions. We help our clients reduce their total cost of ownership by improving the economic, social and environmental performance of new and existing buildings.

We’re known nationwide for cutting-edge innovation and excellent collaboration to achieve significant results that impact our world.

We believe Collaborate + Innovate = Impact
